Re: the two mile transit bikeshed - why 2 miles? New-ish FTA policy defines the relationship of bike facilities to transit stations as being within 3 miles. Would think for consistency and shooting for the moon that going with 3 would be the way to go http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2011-08-19/pdf/2011-21273.pdf

Is there a map showing the route of the proposed trail between Weverton a d Hagerstown?

@Darren. This year only the half mile standard applied. That seemed wrong and would exclude connecting wb&a and Henson creek trails to metro stations on the other side of the beltway. But 2 miles would do it. And average person rides 2 miles about as fast as one walks a half a mile. So people agreed to my motion.

I did not know about this metric you provided. Thanks. If MDOT uses it instead no one mind. Can you think of any cases in md where the differences will matter?
